If you are in Boracay and have not visited Puka Beach yet, you are missing the best part. This place is raw and unspoiled the way a beach should be. The locals are doing the best job keeping it clean and safe. The locals are polite and very helpful. Help local livelihood by buying the handmade shell bracelets and necklaces.... More

Excellent place to spend the day. Very cheap to get to in a tuk tuk and a nice breeze to keep you cool through out the day. If you are visiting Boracay during the Algae season, head to this place for clear waters.

This is probably the prettiest beach I have ever seen, and it is so pristine because there is almost nobody on the beach! it is on the back side of Boracay island away from all of the tourists. You can get some local stall food and drinks there, but there are no big bars/restaurants there. The water is soooo clear,... More

Wonderful beach away from the maddening crowds. It takes some doing to get there (local taxi type transport is good though. lots of little craft stalls, and a few restaurants right at the beach. Enjoyed just kickin' back and relaxing. No pressure, or crowds.

Personally I found this beach quite normal, there is little shade available, the sand is a little rougher than white beach. But it's still worth going and walking to the left side where you will find a small private beach behind the rocks, and on the right side some nice swimming and even to snorkel. Easily accessible, by trike. About... More

Beautiful, clean beach with white sand. Sand was coarse, not fine like on White beach. shore is quite steep so be careful stepping into the water as you will find yourself deep in before you know it. Waves make this place suitable for skimboarding. This beach did not have algae.
